Good place for brunch or lunch, or dinner, if you're in the Union Street area. I had the Eggs Benedict - nicely done and the wait staff was concerned when one of the yolks broke just as they were ready to serve me. I was okay with that, but they wanted it to look good too, so they took it... More

A month ago, calling from Sarasota, Florida I made a Brunch reservation for twelve family members in celebration of my husband's birthday. It was a warm sunny Sunday afternoon and the Union Street Fair was in full swing! We couldn't believe the crowds and blocked streets. Our table, perfectly situated in this bright cheery French bistro, was waiting for us... More

We started with a bottle of Champaign and some very nice oysters, great, fresh. Following that we ordered our appetizers... More

The hostess was fantastic, somehow on a crowded Friday night we got same wonderful crescent-shaped booth table that we got last time we visited (from out of state). Then oysters arrived almost immediately and were the best oysters we had ever eaten! The sommelier was very attentive, too. Roast chicken and the Lamb sirloin were both totally divine. Wish we...

Missing home we couldn't resist. Our waiter was very good and the food came without delay. The restaurant is friendly and pleasant. The girls ended with Chocolat Chaud which was yummy and pronounced the best ever!

Better than Bouchon at half the price. Brunch on Saturday is a great value. Very attentive staff. A must go.
